Hi, my HD wich has linux lite running, sounds like its not going to last much longer.
Downloading files or updating linux isnt possible anymore, it starts making these loud clicking noises and after some time crashes.
Is it possible to move everything to an external HD and then switch it with the internal broken HD ?

The restore point creation process crashes at 2% already.
The hard drive starts making alot of noise and I get a black screen.

No idea what it all means, new to linux and still learning, but if it cant create a restore point it probably cant create an ISO either.
Maybe theres too much data corrupted ?
